The resolution 1680X1050 is the native resolution for your monitor. This means that the best view for your monitor is for this resolution. Your problem in not at the resolution, it's at the refresh rate. How to fix this? Go to the settings for your screen. At the lower right corner you will locate "for advanced users" button. Click on it and choose the "screen" tab. At the lower part of the window you will locate the "refresh rate". Click on it and change it at the lower setting (about 60 - 70 Hertz). Click on aplly - OK. You will be back to the resolution settings page. Set the resolution at 1680X1050, apply - ok. Go back to "refresh rate" window and change the setting to a higher setting STEP BY STEP. In case of an "out of range" and blaack screen DON'T DO ANYTHING, at 15 seconds you will come back to the previous settings. With this procedure you will get the native resolution for your screen with the higher refresh rate.

Hi Jessica,
Dell E228WFPC/E228WFP does support displays with 1920x1080 set resolution via DVI connection while it is restricted to validated Dell brand displays:
  • The restriction applies to resolution higher than 1680x1050 via DVI connection.
  • No restriction with VGA connection, which supports up to 1920x1200.

If you use a DVI connection set your computer's resolution to 1680x1050.

I cannot get good resolution in my Hannspree HF229H, what can I do???


The resolution you should be getting is 1680x1050. Under Windows 7, right click on your desktop then open 'Screen Resolution'. If the resolution is set to anything other than 1680x1050, set it to that. If that setting is not available then it is possible that your video card does not support that resolution. This would only effect old computers. If the resolution is set to 1680x1050 but you don't have the proper resolution onscreen, try adjusting the monitor settings using the buttons on the bottom of your monitor. Hope this help and have a nice day!

You have to use the dvi-d cables on both video card in order to get the higher resolutions on both screens. also the nvidia control panel must be set up the right way so that both screens receive the higher resolution.. there should be a selection for panning across both screens, and another for selecting apps on 1 screen and main os on the other. try changing those settings around, more than likely that is the reason that it's going at a lower resolution.

The screen is very, very dark. Someone told me the backlighting might be broken, but I don't know. I can just barely make out things on my desktop. The lighting can't be turned up.
